It's fantastic, and visually gobsmacking. I watched it for the 3rd time a couple of days ago. Wish I'd seen it in the cinema.

On the back of it's 14 BAFTA nominations, watched Chernobyl again.

One year on from it's original showing & it hasn't lost any of it's impact. Still as hard hitting as when I'd first watched it.

Agreed, have watched it 3 times now! Sky Documentary quickly becoming a favourite channel. Brilliant programmes every day. Also, Loudermilk on Amazon Prime is hilarious. Just finished the Epstein series on Netflix too, staggering really.

Just binged watched Babylon Berlin , I would love to have visited 1920/30s Berlin.

Also just finished Hotel Beau Séjour on All 4. Brilliant Belgian drama. Opening 5 minutes - girl wakes up in a hotel bedroom to find herself dead in the bath - hooked.

Box set of both series of Das Boot for the next week, I think.

Ozark. Finished series 3. Not as good as the first two, but plenty to enjoy. One more series has been commissioned.

So...any good?

On my son's recommendation I'm bingeing The Expanse on Amazon Prime. Fantastic sci-fi that was rescued by Amazon after the SyFy channel cancelled it. Great writing, production and effects.

Also just finished the first series of GLOW. Great performances and funny too.

Wow. As much as I enjoyed it it's not one I'll rewatch. Although I did recently watch a couple of episodes when I was channel surfing, like Watchers on the Wall and Hardhome.

Just started the Plot against America on Now TV, an alternate history take on what happens if Charles Lindberg had become president after defeating Roosevelt. It's quite something

It's well acted, very atmospheric and quite uncomfortable viewing. If you have, well "enjoyed" is probably the wrong word for the programme, found it interesting I'd recommend "Dominion" by C.J.Sansom which is a UK alternative history based on appeasement.

I May Destroy You from BBC 3

Wow.
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Just recently watched 2 excellent cricket documentaries doing the rounds on BBC and Sky at the moment - The Edge, about the England cricket teams rise and fall under Andy Flower and Fire in Babylon about the dominance of the West Indies in the late 70's / 80's

Watched over the weekend Fort Salem on BBC iPlayer. Premis being that in an alternate version of present-day, witches weren't killed 300 years ago at Salem but used their powers to form the United States Army.

Game of thrones. Up to season 6 was riveting. So many plots and sub plots to keep you interested. But after season 6 I felt it just lost its way a bit.

To be honest it was a shame.

Which is about the time that it diverted from the books because they aren’t finished yet, and boy, it shows.

Just concluded Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix, very enjoyable. Also, have just started watching the Toast of London, not sure why I didn't see it first time round, very funny. Matt Berry is brilliant :-)
